Swaying palms, white sands and sun-dappled turquoise water lure visitors to Mozambique’s long stretch of coast — a relaxing complement to a busy few days on safari. From here, you can dive and snorkel among fish-riddled reefs, explore tiny fishing villages or take a traditional dhow out on the pink-tinged ocean at sunset. There’s a lot more to this largely undeveloped country, though. Our safari specialists, who’ve visited here many times, can help you to discover its wildlife, culture and colonial past on a holiday to Mozambique tailored to your interests.
Spending 400 years under Portuguese rule has left its mark in places such as Ibo Island, where dilapidated churches and crumbling mansions line the streets. You can also see the legacy of the country’s role in Swahili and Portuguese trade in its former capital, Ilha de Mocambique. Elsewhere, a safari in Niassa Game Reserve, in the north, gives you a chance to see large herds of elephant alongside buffalo, zebra and wildebeest.
